A Guide to using Markdown in vscode


In vscode, you can open the Markdown preview by clicking on the eye icon in the Preview pane. You can also toggle the preview of a Markdown file (CTRL+K V).

The Markdown preview will automatically refresh as you type. However, it is possible to disable this functionality with the markdown.preview.autoShowPreview setting.

When you hover over a style in the editor, a lightning bolt icon will appear on the right side of the editor. Clicking on that icon will update your stylesheet to include that style and preview it in the browser.

If you want to learn more about Markdown, I recommend this handy guide from GitHub. I also encourage you to review our style guide for tips on writing articles. For example, we strive for the active voice and prefer bullet lists over paragraphs of text.

In the following sections, we’ll explain how to create a new article using the markdown editor.
